1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. sugar
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 c. margarine or butter, softened

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oven to 375. In small bowl combine flour, cocoa and baking soda; blend well. In large bowl, beat 1 c sugar, brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Stir in 1/2 c. of pecans.
For each cookie with floured hands shape about 1 tablespoon of dough around 1 caramel candy, covering completely.
In small bowl, combine remaining 1/2 c. pecans and 1 T. sugar. Press one side of each ball into pecan mixture and place nut side up 2 in. apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 7-10 min. or until set and slightly cracked. Cool 2 min.; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely on wire rack.
Melt candy coating in saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. (I do this in the microwave following directions on package). Drizzle over cookies. (I put the melted white chocolate in a zip lock and snip the corner off).

Personal Notes:
When I worked at Burger King there was an older couple that came in every week and brought us homemade cookies. This one was my favorite and she would bring them in all the time! I was always hiding them from everybody else so that I could have them all! The best part was that she always shared her recipes. This recipe is in her words.
